In the present study, we attempted to add the incompatible functions as additional variable terms to the conventional u-p formulation. It is derived from the four-field generalized variational principle that encompasses velocity, pressure, velocity strains and stress fields as independent interpolated variables. As a severe test of the present formulation, we have investigated the driven cavity with the corner velocity singularity like leaky lid. Through the test, the present element performs very well without unstable oscillation of pressure distribution.
